Concord, NH – If you have ever been interested in learning about turkey hunting, or want to brush up on some of the finer points, the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department (NHFG) and the Granite State’s local chapter of the National Wild Turkey Federation (NWTF) have developed a series of virtual webinars to help turkey hunters of all skill levels get ready for opening day. The spring 2020 turkey harvest was the largest ever recorded, and the 2021 spring turkey hunting season, which opens on May 1 and runs through May 31, promises to be equally as exciting.
